Zetas honor breast cancer survivors with yearly celebration and wig collection
The Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Omicron Sigma Zeta chapter in Baton Rouge has scheduled its Blutiful In Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Program for Thursday, October 29 at 6 p.m. Due to the pandemic, it will take place virtually via Zoom.
“Over the past five years, we have been able to impact the lives of hundreds of warriors and survivors of this illness,” said Christina Carter, chair of the Zetas Helping Other People Excel (Z-HOPE) committee. “The more we can educate ourselves on prevention and early detection as well as take better care of ourselves the more we can change the statistics impacting our communities.”
The purpose of this program is to bring about awareness to breast cancer as well as to inform and discuss prevention and healthy lifestyles. As part of this program each year, the chapter collects new wigs for the Cancer Center of Baton Rouge. The community will have two opportunities to drop-off wigs: Friday, October 16 from 3pm-5pm. at Sherwood Middle Magnet and Saturday, October 24 from 10 a.m.-noon at Independence Park.
The Blutiful In Pink program is free and open to the public; however, registration is required. Participants can register at http://bit.ly/blutifulinpink.
